Austin & Houston decimated by heavy rain and flooding
May 26, 2015 2:21pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Austin's Stevie Ray Vaughn Statue (via)

Hey guys, due to flooding in the downtown area, we are canceling tonight's show. Be safe out there.

— The Hawk (@mohawkaustin) May 25, 2015

Austin, TX -- our home away from home, one of the biggest music cities in the US, home of SXSW, ACL, Fun Fun Fun Fest, countless musicians, venues, friends and many great people -- was hit hard by heavy rains that caused horrible flooding all over the city and other parts of Texas and Oklahoma. As you may have heard and seen on the news, the flooding took out trees, cars, homes and businesses. At least ten people lost their lives and more are still missing. Animals were evacuated from shelters.

The North Lamar of area in Austin got particularly hit hard (check out video below).

Among other more important things, this played havoc with scheduled concerts. Purity Ring's show at Stubb's on Saturday (5/23) got postponed to Monday at Austin Music Hall (5/25) which, in turn, then got canceled. This Wednesday's kickoff to the free "Blues on the Green" series at Zilker Park (an Antone's 40th-anniversary celebration) is postponed till June 3 (Jimmy Vaughn and the "special guest" are still scheduled to perform). The Mohawk on Red River, as you can see in a tweet above, cancelled a show, though some places (like Scoot Inn and Shangri-La) went out of their way to make sure people ...

Download Condo Fucks
May 26, 2015 2:17pm | StereoGum
Back in 2009, Yo La Tengo released Fuckbook, an album of scrappy, noisy lo-fi punk under their alter-ego Condo Fucks. And every once in a while, YLT will dust off that Condo Fucks name to play a set of covers. This past Friday, they played the Cake Shop, the tiny Lower East Side venue that … More »



Listen to Disclosure
May 26, 2015 2:05pm | Fact Magazine

Here’s the first official single from their sophomore album.

Disclosure have followed ‘Bang That’ with ‘Holding On’, a soulful house tune that features Grammy Award-winning jazz vocalist Gregory Porter.

Stream Communions Communions EP
May 26, 2015 1:58pm | StereoGum
Communions, a young band from Copenhagen, come from the same Danish punk scene that gave us bands like Iceage, and they've got some of the same chilly sparseness that some of those bands bring. But Communions also have gifts for melody and for woozy, spangly guitar sounds that make them unique in their scene. Last … More »



Disclosure
May 26, 2015 1:42pm | StereoGum
"Bang That," released on the first day of this month, was the first proper new Disclosure song in two years. But it wasn't the first official single from the follow-up to 2013's smash debut album Settle. That'd be "Holding On," the Gregory Porter collab that just debuted on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 … More »



Disclosure premieres new single
May 26, 2015 1:37pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Howard and Guy Lawrence of Disclosure made their epic comeback earlier this month with “Bang That”, the first piece of new music since the release of their widely-acclaimed debut LP, Settle. Today, the UK duo returned to Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program to premiere yet another contagious club anthem called “Holding On”.

Dubbed the official “first single” off Disclosure’s forthcoming sophomore album, it features the velvety croons of Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Gregory Porter. According to the Lawrence brothers, the track was originally written by Howard, Porter, and longtime collaborator Jimmy Napes as a ballad for the piano. Guy, however, turned that low-key mix into what it is today, in a way “remixing” their own original song. Disclosure previously promised that the new LP, like its predecessor, would feature a generous list of guest collaborators; if “Holding On” is any indication of the star power to come, it sounds like fans are in for a doozy. Listen in below.



Poetic Justice: RJD2 and Sugar Tongue Slim talk
May 26, 2015 1:34pm | Fact Magazine

RJD2 came into the game more-or-less fully-formed.

Since his ‘June’ single on Def Jux in 2001, RJ has built on a solid foundation of expertly layered melancholy samples and signature drum flourishes. The sound has mutated into pop, rock, R&B and whatever else he feels like over his career — five solo albums, a few full collaborations with Aceyalone and Blueprint, remixes for the likes of Yo La Tengo — but RJ has always sounded like himself.

In the Atlanta-born, Philly-bred Sugar Tongue Slim, RJ found a partner in reliable quality. A slam poet by trade, some goading from fellow poet Black Ice and Jazzy Jeff led STS to transmute his accordant shit-talking skills into a totally respectable Andre 3000 flow. Working behind the scenes, he


Watch Run The Jewels Play

When Caitlin wrote about Miguel's live rendition of "Coffee" that was recorded for Jack Daniels' "Uncut" series, she mentioned that the next session would be with Run The Jewels. Sure enough, the duo recorded a performance of "Pew Pew Pew," a bonus track from their 2013 debut album, at Killer Mike's Graffitis SWAG … More »



Album Of The Week: Boosie Badazz Touch Down 2 Cause Hell
May 26, 2015 1:27pm | StereoGum
Back in 2007, the now-defunct booty magazine King sent me down to Orlando to profile the Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie. Boosie had a bunch of hits at the time -- tightly-coiled, exultant club-rap bangers like "Zoom" and "Wipe Me Down" and "Independent" -- and the editors' idea was that I should do a "most … More »
